The Joplin Chamber of Commerce has its first new president in 23-years. Toby Teeter took over the role from Rob O’Brien who stepped down from the position earlier this year to run for State Senate. Teeter’s first day on the job was December 10, 2018. As a Joplin native he views the job as a natural fit of combining two things that he loves. Using advertising and marketing to reshape the story of his hometown.
